You will be dealing with internal stakeholders regarding the implementation and improvement of technology so should have the communication skills required to influence and manage these managers.

In addition, you will have direct management responsibility for three reports, so people management experience would be useful.

Key Experience:
Proven track record of project managing a broad range of business related ICT projects.
Managing project schedules
Managing issues and risks
